Training Courses

Short term course example

The objective of a short term two-week course is familiarization with TSC capabilities and its potential for training and development of fundamentals of combat engagement tactics along with familiarization with and mastering of elementary principles of BVR missiles engagement. A generic curriculum proposal for two training weeks is shown below. The course content is flexible; changes according to customer´s requirements are acceptable.

First training week – short-term elementary course – BVR training

1. Introductory briefing (mandatory briefing on TSC policies and operation):

  • TSC Security Briefing
  • Introduction to TSC, cockpit and GCI work sites operation, practical demonstration of briefing/debriefing tools (Familiarization Flight – standard for all courses)

2. Elementary BVR training against non-maneuvering targets

  • Aim: introduction to cockpit and simulations during a simple mission, radar operation and missile launch, GCI – Pilot coordination

3. Elementary training of pairs against non-maneuvering targets

  • Aim: training in cooperation in pairs, targets allocation, GCI – Pilot coordination

4. Follow on training of pairs against maneuvering man-controlled targets

  • Aim: learning of command techniques in pairs, targets allocation, response to a developed situation (Close Air Patrol), cooperation with GCI

5. Elementary training of flights of four aircraft

  • Aim: practicing of command techniques in flights, targets allocation,  cooperation with GCI

6. Follow on training in flight operations

  • Aim: consolidation of knowledge and routine in weapons (F3 - Active Missile) employment during OCA and DCA missions

7. Fun Flight – voluntary mission; all against all scenario

Note:

At the beginning of each course, it is possible to specify the detailed slot´s composition and schedule set-up. Based on our experience we offer full/part assistance by TSC instructor pilots with guidance of the course/basic info on tactics/introduction to advantages-disadvantages of F1xF3 (Semi Active x Active) missiles.

Second training week – short-term elementary course – QRA training

Self-standing training week (course) intended to train QRA procedures – elementary, follow on and/or rehearsal training meant to harden QRA routine and knowledge. This course can be scheduled independently of BVR course (no previous knowledge on BVR is required).

1. Introductory briefing (mandatory briefing on TSC policies and operation):

  • TSC Security Briefing
  • Introduction to TSC, cockpit and GCI work sites operation, practical demonstration of briefing/debriefing tools (Familiarization Flight – standard for all courses)

2. Elementary QRA training – Visual Identification (VID) of a target

  • Aim: introduction to cockpit and simulations during a simple mission, on target navigation, VID, orders verification, GCI – Pilot coordination

3. Elementary QRA training – VID of a slow-moving target at low altitude

  • Aim: VID execution on a low altitude and speed, GCI – Pilot coordination

4. Elementary QRA training – aircraft escort form a territory

  • Aim: contact establishment, methods of visual signalization and guidance of an aircraft, GCI – Pilot coordination

5. Follow on QRA training – VID of a fast-moving, maneuvering target

  • Aim: training in cooperation in pairs while visually identifying maneuvering targets on different altitudes

6. Follow on QRA training – assistance in emergency

  • Aim: training in assistance to aircraft when in emergency – loss of communication (COMLOSS), navigation equipment failure, emergency landing

7. Follow on QRA training – forced landing

  • Aim: training in forcing an aircraft to land – cooperative/uncooperative target

8. Follow on QRA training – RENEGADE concept

  • Aim: interrogation against a civil aircraft that was used as terrorist attack means, control, verification, us of weapons

9. And the last mission - Fun Flight – voluntary mission; all against all scenario

Note:

At the beginning of each course, it is possible to specify the detailed slot´s composition and schedule set-up. Based on our experience we offer full/part assistance by TSC instructor pilots with guidance of the course/basic info on tactics/introduction to advantages-disadvantages of F1xF3 (Semi Active x Active) missiles.

Execution and Evaluation of the courses

A Course Contractual Demand Report will be worked out upon conclusion of each course showing number of planned and fulfilled slots and overall assessment of the services. The Report shall be signed by both, the customer´s and services provider´s authority. The Report confirms that the services were provided and consumed in a timely and due form. Within three months after completion of course/courses for the actual calendar year authorized customer’s representative will be issued one piece of a notebook with pre-installed interactive software enabling evaluation and replay of exercises completed. The software allows for display of tactical situation from any perspective with possibility of zooming, and visualization of cockpits (1 to 8) including replay of communication in a respective channel. Relevant data on the training completed will be delivered on one piece of an external HDD. If required lending of one more software license is possible. Price for the notebook and HDD is included in the price of the course.

Mission execution

It is possible to utilize all eight cockpits for training as BLUE forces with only CGF as opponents. But ussualy some cockpits (mainly JTS) are used as more challenging human-manned RED forces.  Mission lasts, based on the complexity of a scenario from 15 to 20 minutes, and within one training slot it is possible to repeat the mission 2 to 3 times (depends on the length of the mission), except for QRA missions. Each one mission is evaluated immediately. Composition of aircrews and allocation of cabins remain the same for the missions during this rehearsal; aircrews briefly carry out between the missions, make short briefing and usually do not change tactics.

Course Time schedule

-          Four (4) hours training slots take place daily simultaneously in eight (8) cockpits and two (2) GCI work sites. Together with mandatory Security Briefing on TSC policies and with instruction on cockpit controls, missiles parameters and employment familiarization, the average time consumption of one-week course equal 250 man-hours.

-          The time schedule is based on experience with pilot´s and GCI´s training, on the ability of the trainees to concentrate and refresh between particular training days/slots.

Support

Due to our effort of complex services provision to our customers and continued improvement of quality, the accommodation, catering and transportation (from lodging facility to TSC and back) for the participants to be included in the course price.
